Having visited many National Parks, we have acquired the upmost respect for the National Park rangers. However, at this center we had 2 unpleasant encounters with the same much older ranger. The first time I thought maybe: bad day. Today when I asked only for a map of camping spots, he looked at me and said, "I'm not planning your... More

Expected to go on a convenient, relaxing boat ride, which it was, but we got much more. Got there early in the morning, and we were the only people on the boat, so the captain and mate tailored the experience for us. Learned a lot!

We took both the 10,000 Islands tour (January 2017) and the Mangrove tour the following month. Not only were the boat rides enjoyable, but we also learned a great deal about the history and wildlife as well as saw a variety of animal inhabitants. The tour guides were very knowledgable. Between the two tours, we saw dolphins, several bird species,... More

We thought this tour was going to be lead by a representative of the Everglades National Park. IT WAS NOT! This trip is a privately run tour, using the name of the Everglades National Park. We took the Mangrove tour with Captain Bill. He started our trip with a chip on his shoulder, he was verbally abusive and was only... More

The 10,000 Island Boat Tour did not disappoint. The captain and first mate shared lots of information about the park the history of the area. During the 1 1/2 hour tour we saw many different types of birds, looked for manatees and learned about the ecology and geography of the Everglades. But the dolphins were the stars of the show....

The fact that the tour guide, Daniel, took an interest in our 11 year old granddaughter, the only child on three trip, saved the cruise for her, but not for use. We got to see one dolphin, no manatees or sharks, and a few birds that we have seen elsewhere along the Gulf. That being said, it was a beautify... More

We took the Mangrove tour through the Everglades National Park welcome center near Everglades City with our son and daughter-in-law. We saw dolphin, alligator, manatee, raccoon, and many other birds. Our guide took the time to let us view the wildlife completely. This cruise goes right into the national park mangrove swamps where local airboat cruises can't go. It is... More
